The Seven Deadly Sins
Volume 1


In a world where injustice prevails, the Holy Knights of Britannia protect their homeland with their unparalleled magic and strength. Their most sought-after targets are "The Seven Deadly Sins": a group of criminals once regarded as the strongest of Britannia's Holy Knights. Their supposed conspiracy to overthrow the Kingdom of Liones led to their defeat at the hands of the Holy Knights, but rumors persist that the seven infamous knights still live.

Ten years later, the Holy Knights ironically stage a coup d'état themselves and capture the King of Liones, installing themselves as the new rulers of the kingdom. Elizabeth Liones, the third princess of the kingdom, sets out on a journey to find the Seven Deadly Sins and request their aid when she stumbles upon a bar owned by Meliodas, the Dragon's Sin of Wrath and the former leader of the disgraced knights. The pair sets out to find Meliodas' old comrades, but will it be hope or despair that awaits them in their travels?

My first impression after watching the first season was that the anime was amazing but I couldn't wait for the second season so I decided to read the manga and at the time the new arc was barely just brewing and it was amazing, I was reading this, One Piece, and Bleach (which was barely finishing) and in the past it was the manga I was the most hyped up about once a new chapter came out.... After a few years a bunch of chapters came out and that hype died away by a lot and it's just sad because this series started out so ...

This review may contain spoilers!!!
ok, so i didn't dropped this because i already had advanced a lot on the history but I wish i hadn't picked up this Manga, when I first saw the anime it didn't looked that bad but the animation was horrible we already know that so i read the manga, my first problems with this was:
1. With the power of love I realize you!!! : this was so cringe, it was awful how every villian was later like uwu I'm good demon actually, and all of the sudden everyone has a beloved one and that love is what saves ...

I genuinely liked nanatsu no taizai for a long time, first 100 chapters were a silly and fun battle shounen worthy of praise (even with the problematic way that Meliodas treated Elizabeth), but from then on it started to get lost.

Even with the arrival of Escanor, a character that worked very well for being the essence of what the manga should always have been, the author was unable to maintain the level of the first arcs, leaving aside everything he had done right, opting for a narrative more and more convoluted and uninteresting, trying to be something bigger and more epic than it should.
